I’ve been working for V-trak for 6 years now. I can’t believe it’s gone so fast! Since starting out as a qualified industrial designer in 2007, I’ve always loved inclusive and rehabilitation technology. The opportunity to use my knowledge of design in V-Trak ltd,to affect people’s lives in a positive way, was an awesome opportunity for me and couldn’t resist mixing two life passions!

After studying as a Designer Andrew has worked previously with a design consultancy and as an in-house designer for – LINPAC a large product manufacturer working in sectors like, traffic, safety products, health and recycling.

I have been involved with V-Trak for 10 years now. One wee boy and a set of twins later, I have aged a little and still in Wales and not my Scottish homeland. My heart for this industry - inclusive design, the rehab market, design for disability, whatever you prefer to call it - has kept me at V-Trak. Now as a part owner, I believe we will and are focused on achieving consistent improvements. Our aim is to provide innovative clinical products which you want to buy and the user wants to use, all whilst providing an empathetic and efficient service.

After studying design at University in wales Russell has worked previously with design consultancies and undertaken a 2 year knowledge transfer project with PDR – The National Centre for Product Design & Development Research. Gaining a foundation of clinical knowledge with V-Trak while undertaking clinics and In-service training.

I was asked to join V-TRAK in 2009 to look at the manufacturing processes within the company. I quickly realised what a unique product I was looking at and was hooked instantly! In 2010 when I was asked if I would like to become a partner in the company I had no hesitation.I love making products that help people and, although I am a little biased, I believe we are market leaders!

After an upholstery background lasting 10 years, Lyn moved into the medical rehab industry. 35 years later he puts all of his manufacturing and engineering skills to good use here at V-trak.

No matter who calls I like to think that we at V-trak can help and if we can’t we are honest about it and point you in the right direction of someone who can.

My role at V-Trak as Financial Accountant is varied and wide ranging, from issuing invoices to producing Company Accounts and Budgets. Many things have changed since I was first employed here over 15 years ago, including a handful of office moves, which thankfully, have now lead to us being located closer to my home as I dislike driving in the awful Welsh weather.

Jan qualified as an Accountant (FCCA after her name) around the time of her 40th birthday while bringing up 5 kids. What an achievement! How time flies – Jan is now a Grandmother of 10!
